RE: [Histonet] Linistainers and the odd aberant staining slide

From:"Edmondson David (RBV) NHS Christie Tr"

When our clips detatch, partially, then sometimes they cause chaos on the
machine with slides everywhere and sometimes they just come to the end
looking horrid.  Those mounting will pop them in acid alcohol before setting
them back in the chain at Haematoxylin stage.   If the clip looks past its
best it is ditched.  Bother the cost.

   Dear All:

   I Have a Linistainer, I get nice staining, but evey now and then I get
   real bad staining on only one slide. Why? It is not the microtomy, the
   staining  is  bad all over the place, not patchy. The sections look as
   though  they  have  missed  the  haematoxylin. Has anyone had the same
   problem   and  any  intresting  insights,  something  to  placate  the

   Yours faithfully,
